I just bought a ton of stuff at a bankruptcy auction for a company that manufactures solid wood doors.

I have hundreds of edge glued, sanded, Radiata Pine panels at 24”x24” x 5/8”, 12” x 24” x 5/8”, and then another species of very light pine a little more yellow than the radiata in 15” x 24” x 1/2.

I also have about 25,000 LF of moldings for making doors and windows. About half of it is pine and a third is gorgeous spanish cedar. The rest is a mix of maple, oak, and fir. There are about 15 different molding profiles. I am still working on getting all this cataloged and photographed, but here are some photos of the pine panels and one of the spanish cedar moldings. This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as moldings. I’ll try to get more on here soon.

If you are interested in any of this stuff, email me at vitesse951 at yahoo.

I’m in Foley, AL. This stuff is all relatively light so shipping won’t be too bad.

Looks like you hit the jackpot. Nice going.

I decided to set up a little website for this stuff. I have the moldings up but have not gotten the panels on there yet. For some reason the spanish cedar appears washed out in the photos. I’m not sure why, but this stuff is very richly colored and dark.

Here is the site:
